AIRCRAFT WIRE HARNESS ASSEMBLY
Designing Aircraft Wire Harnesses 101 | 2019-04-17 | ASSEMBLY
There are thousands of part numbers to choose from when designing a wire harness. How do you decide which parts to select? The first thing you need to understand is the difference between standard parts, nonstandard parts and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) parts. A standard part is a military part. It is controlled by the U.S. military. These parts are often called MIL SPEC parts (short for military specificatioWire SelectionWire IdentificationConnector SelectionReference DesignatorsShield TerminationHarness Bundle ProtectionIndustry StandardsWhen an aircraft’s electrical system is designed, the starting point is at the system level. A system schematic shows the larger components and how they are connected. In the system schematic, they are simply connected together with a line, but the size and specification of the wire are not called out. Also, the system schematic does not show where there are breaks in the wire, such as when it passes through a bulkhead via two connectors. Even though it is a very basic design, the schematic will indicate the typSee more on assemblymagAuthor: John AshourPublished:

In addition, connector disconnects will determine when a wire goes through a bulkhead. Each wire in a wire segment is then uniquely identified (see Chapter 4 WireFile Size: 948KBPage Count: 29
Electrical Wiring Harnesses, Wire Harness Assembly
Electrical Wiring Harnesses InterConnect manufactures a wide variety of aircraft electrical wiring harnesses. From small radio frequency or coaxial cable assemblies to very large complicated assemblies with over one-hundred connectors and thousands of feet of wire.

Wiring Harness and Wire Looms for Aircraft - Silver Fox
An electrical wiring harness, also known as a wire harness, cable harness, cable assembly, wiring assembly or wiring loom, is an assembly of electrical cables or wires which transmit signals or electrical power throughout an aircraft. Wiring loom is commonly used in a European context. A wire is described as a single, solid conductor or a
